  • Covid messed up a lot of things this year but one good thing it gave us was Sara Zarrella. She was our first choice photographer since we first got engaged but unfortunately is so popular she was booked solid. After quarantine when we revisited planning our wedding, we realized she was available and it was a no brainer. Her talent is inspiring, her pictures leave me in awe but most importantly, her personality and energy are what meant the most. As most brides do, I looked forward to my wedding day for many important reasons, but honestly top 3 for Brad and I was to spend the day with Sara. We knew we would have a blast and most importantly we trusted her, her team and her work. We knew that having Sara on our special day would ease any worries and we were not wrong. We can't properly express how incredible it is to have complete faith and trust in your photographer on your wedding day - it was everything to us. We are so grateful to Sara for making our big day better, for capturing ou... Read more

  • My husband and I got engaged in June and decided to take advantage of a last-minute cancellation at Castle Hill Inn that became available in September for our wedding. With just about three months to plan our wedding and pick our vendors, the stress started to set in. Luckily, a close friend recommended Sara Zarrella for our photography. Having attended my friend’s wedding in Mexico and seen what beautiful pictures she had captured, I was sold! From the moment we began working with Sara it was stress free. She spent the time to understand what was most important about the memories we would capture in our photos. She was organized and let us both feel confident in her abilities and comfortable knowing she would be there to capture our day. On our wedding day, Sara did a great job ensuring we got the best shots, while making sure our time was spent enjoying the moments we were in. We are so thankful for Sara for capturing our special day- it is what we will look back on for years to c... Read more

  • Sara is the real deal ... from initial conversations all the way through to final details she took all the pressure off us ... she knows what you want before you even do!! The ceremony was perfection, and she controlled the shoot the entire time ... she has a ton of energy so just let her lead the way!! We cannot say enough about Sara ... would hire her again in an INSTANT.

  • I worked with Sara Zarella Photography and Rock your booth in planning and during my wedding that happened on Sept 12,2020. My original wedding venue cancelled my wedding on my husband and I two weeks before my wedding and Sara came to the rescue as we moved our wedding from NY to Newport! The efforts that were demonstrated passed my exceptations! I was so happy to work with Dan as he did an amazing job with my photos and showing a lot of interests on where to take photos. Rock the booth was an amazing addition to the wedding fun as all my guests used the photobooth all night! I cant thank the staff enough! Really would recommend!

  • Sara and her team are incredible! Due to the pandemic, we had to split our ceremony and reception into two separate dates. Sara made this transition so smooth and helped us choose the best package to accommodate our needs! She is so much fun to be around and immediately puts you at ease! Although she was our photographer, it felt more like working with a close friend...she even helped me place my veil! You can tell that she loves what she does and puts her whole heart into her work! The photographs she takes are stunning and she knows just how to capture a moment. Since our wedding ceremony took place in the late afternoon, Sara knew exactly how to work the lighting so that our photographs came out beautifully. I cannot recommend her enough and cannot wait to work with Sara and her team again!

  • We had the best experience with Sara!!! We used her for our engagement photos and our wedding. We had a minimony due to covid, and Sara was amazing at working with us when we had to adjust our plans due to many covid restrictions. Her photos were so so beautiful, and I’m so happy that we will have them forever. We were so impressed with how professional and amazing she was. She knew the perfect lighting, poses, and photos to get. She made sure that we got photos with every single combination of people that we wanted to. It was honestly the best money we spent at our small wedding and I would choose her again a million times over if I could! She is worth every penny!!! We definitely plan to use her again in the future when we do family photos and for other occasions! We couldn’t be happier with our beautiful sets of photos.

We hope you look back at your images years to come with found memories! Don't be strangers we hope to see you again in front of our lens!

  • I wish I could give Sara more then 5 stars cause she really deserves it. From the start of our first interaction at the beginning of the year to receiving our photos she has made herself extremely accommodating. We were originally suppose to get married in April and due to COVID things took a turn however Sara was willing to do anything she could to accommodate us and still give us what we wanted beautiful wedding photos. On our wedding day she made us both feel completely comfortable. She made it easy to be in front of the camera. You could tell that she was incredible at what she does. She made it all feel so easy. When it was time and our photos were Ready and all I can say is WOW. My husband and I are still having trouble deciding what is our favorite. But I am so happy that there are So many great photos to choose from!! If your looking for someone upbeat, positive, reliable Sara is the photographer you should go to for your wedding day!

  • Picking wedding vendors can be difficult and when it comes to the investment for photography, it can be nerve-wracking, since you will have these photos forever! Even though I am from RI, we didn’t have an immediate go to photographer for our wedding day, so we did exhaustive research and did our due diligence of talking with many photographers. When it came down to it, SZP had the best reviews, that to me were more detailed and said much more than just ‘they were awesome/beautiful pictures”, they really spoke of Sara and Dan as professionals but also as people. To us this was important since we were going to spend 8 hours of one of the most important days of our lives together! Also, Sara and her team were one of the most responsive and straightforward vendors I worked with, which I am a no nonsense, type A, straight forward person so I was immediately put at ease with her honest approach to things. Sara and Dan were amazing, my husband and I, our wedding parties all felt really... Read more

  • Sara is hands down the best! From our initial conversation we clicked right away and I knew she was the one to capture our special day and tell our fairy tale! our engagement photos were beyond amazing and I still stare at them daily. Her attention to detail is incomparable and her talent shines in every photo she takes! I can officially say she will be our lifelong photographer capturing all our family moments!

  • Sara and Dan were awesome! The first time I met Sara in person was on the morning of my wedding. She immediately got to work and it felt like I have known her for years. Leading up to the wedding she was very communicative and easy to work with. She really listened to what our vision was for pictures and made us feel at ease. Dan was just as cool, calm and collected. They were both super fun. Sara even bustled my dress when my MOH and 2 of the wedding coordinators couldn’t figure it out. Thank goodness because I was dying to get to the cocktail hour to see my friends and family! They are true professionals and before we even saw any pictures, we knew we made the right decision by hiring Sara. But then… we got the pictures and were floored by all of the moments that they captured of our wedding day. I can’t wait to call Sara again for future milestones. Thank you, Sara and Dan! I highly recommend Sara Zarrella Photography.

  • We loved working with Sara Zarrella Photography for every step of our Newport wedding - from thoughtful planning to day of flexibility and support. While I initially chose SZP for the aesthetic and the excellent reviews, I could not have predicted just how much we would appreciate having them be a part of our special day. Dan was not only professional and creative, he was fun to hang out with all day! He put everyone at ease in front of the camera (even the camera-shy) and made taking photos an adventure for our bridal party. We had a blast climbing over railings and scrambling around on the rocks - Dan took our penchant for adventure and ran with it, making for some really exciting shots. He managed to strike the perfect balance between guiding us into the perfect group shots/formals and capturing impromptu moments at the drop of a hat, not to mention coming up with great ideas for how to use each space to our best advantage. It truly felt like we were working with a friend. We can’... Read more
